LETTER: School PAC's Host Backpack Collection Event

Aug 10, 2015 11:11AM ● By Paige Impink
Hello families of the Tewksbury Public Schools,

The PACs (Parent Advisory Councils) from the Dewing, Heath Brook, North Street and Trahan schools decided to come together to offer a service to our community. Many of us know of families that may have a short term need for some assistance with organizing all the resources that our children need at the start of a school year. We would like to help.

On August 20th, at Oakdale Plaza, 1900 Main Street ( 4-7 p.m.), we are holding a town wide event (Stuff the Bus) to collect backpacks and school supplies. The backpacks will be stuffed with items needed to start school off right.

Friends of the schools and community members are invited to donate one or more items - pencils, crayons, folders are just a few items that we hope to collect from this event. The items we are asking for are pencils, twistable crayons, folders, red pens, highlighters, dry erase markers, glue sticks, accordion folders and any other items that might be necessary for the start of school. 

Families who need this opportunity this year are urged to write/email your child(ren)'s principal.

After August 20, (s)he will get back to you with the days and times you can stop by the school to pick up your child(ren)'s backpack and supplies. Please let your principal know the grade and gender of your children so the right backpacks are available.

We hope that you will enjoy the rest of these lazy days of summer and then join us for a brand new school year on September 2nd.

The Dewing, Heath Brook, North Street and Trahan PACs.
